Hi im new to all this but thought i would share my story. I am 63 years old and have smoked from a young age. I gave up in March this year. 7 months later i am having a lot of breathing problems. Cannot walk a few strides with out getting out of breath and wheezing all the time. Have been to Doctor and to a & e, as friends were worried about me and they did lots of tests and luckily they said there was nothing nasty going on. Huge relief but it is very debilitating as, for my age, i am quite active i. I work full time and on my days off i work with horses which i find quite difficult to do now as cant turn out or bring in without getting completely out of breath. Has anyone else had these problems. I have also smoked a vape pen which Dr's and hospital were not that concerned about.
